Dear John Doe

Nov 5, 2014


Without members we cannot legally ask for negotiations. Without someone willing to lodge a complaint we cannot even ask the Labor Standards Office to investigate.

We recommend you contact us again, sit down with us and look at the various options. Talking to us doesn’t mean your name will be reported to the company etc. We keep that information to ourselves, until you and the union decide to proceed or not.




We field a ton of phone calls asking how to deal with problems in the workplace. It isn’t unusual for people to refuse to tell us their workplace.

That means we can’t advise you. While problems can be similar from workplace to workplace they are not the same and our advice really differs. For example, we do not give ECC teachers the same advice as someone working at a Kindergarten where the owner is known to have thrown things at employees.

Each place is unique and our advice differs accordingly. So please don’t be offended when we wont give advice if you aren’t willing to tell us the name of your employer.
